Omaha Caniacs Welcome Newest Raising Cane’s

Popular chicken finger brand to hold grand opening celebration next Tuesday

OMAHA, NE (Oct. 20, 2016) – Don’t try to tell local chicken finger lovers that three Raising Cane’s in Omaha are enough to satisfy their cravings!

The popular Louisiana-based restaurant company known for its ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – is putting the finishing touches on its fourth area restaurant, in anticipation of its grand opening on Tuesday, Oct. 25. The newest Raising Cane’s is located at 10808 Q St. in Omaha.

The festivities begin at 9:30 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Omaha Chamber of Commerce. First-time visitors will be treated to traditional cheers and other high-energy chants to launch the location in unique Cane’s fashion, compliments of its 70 newly hired crewmembers. Doors open to the public at 10 a.m.

To add to the excitement, the first 20 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive Free Cane’s for a Year! In addition, the first 100 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive a free limited-edition Cane’s Omaha T-shirt, along with a voucher for a free Box Combo – containing four fresh, never ever frozen chicken fingers, Texas toast, secret recipe Cane’s sauce, coleslaw, crinkle-cut fries and a drink – that may be redeemed on a subsequent visit.

Radio station KQCH 94.1-FM will also be on-hand, playing Top 40 hits from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The good people of Omaha can’t seem to get enough of our ONE LOVE, and we couldn’t be more happy to give them another great place to get their chicken finger fix,” said General Manager Jason Gehrken, an Omaha native and proud graduate of Gretna High School. “We’ve assembled an awesome crew and we’re looking forward to opening our doors next Tuesday at our beautiful new Q Street restaurant.”

Founded by Todd Graves in 1996 and named for his yellow Labrador, Raising Cane’s recently earned the distinction of being among the Top 10 quick service restaurant chains in the nation for 2015, according to the authoritative Sandelman & Associates Quick-Track study, based on food quality, customer service, cleanliness and other important factors.

Along with its focus on chicken fingers, Raising Cane’s is renowned for its commitment to active involvement in its local communities. On Wed., Oct. 19, Gehrken and his fellow crewmembers volunteered their time at the Heartland Hope Mission, where they sorted clothes, cleaned and pitched in as needed around the faith-based food pantry.

“We were proud to help out at Heartland Hope for our pre-opening service project, supporting the important work they do for the working poor here in Omaha,” said Gehrken. “And we’re excited about getting more involved with the local schools and other organizations throughout the area in the weeks, months and years ahead.”

Hours of operation at Raising Cane’s newest restaurant are Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 Midnight. When it opens, it will be the 9th Raising Cane’s in Nebraska and the 295th its nationwide system.
